Artist: ABECASSIS, ERYCK & FRANCISCO MEIRINO
Title: La Guele Du Loup
Format: CD
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $11.00
""La Gueule Du Loup" explores raw improvisation in a crude, almost cruel manner. On stage the two musicians build musical sets free of pre-existing structures or recorded sounds. The electronic matrix arises from the modules and is immediately propelled into the atmosphere. The two unpatched modular sythesizers first suggest a virgin circuit. Patches are built during the performance. Cosmetic memory plays a secondary role here, catapulted styles shoving the idea of y unified single-style. This is another memory, where the patch is a substitution to ensure a sound coherence of elements, tones, micro-tones, rhythms, order and chaos. Edition of 300." - Fragment Factory.

Artist: ARV & MILJÖ/KRUBE.
Title: Krube.
Format: Cass
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $8.00
"Two of the rather on the spot names in the current European tape-mangler scene team up for their first and long overdue joint release. Berlin based Krube. returns home after his very first solo cassette "Vom Unerträglichen" (Fragment Factory, 2011) and takes his crude and crippled 21st century musique concrète to the next level. In his 20 minutes piece, K. manages to combine the raw and dirty nature of his earlier noise based concrete/tapemusic with a great sensitivity and open-mindedness to modern compositional techniques and tactics.Alongside of Sewer Election, Gothenburgs Arv&Miljö has become the epitome of a unique sound and spirit in the South Swedish sub-underground, which evolved during the past 10 or so years. In "Okänd Strand" A&M extracts the very essence of Peter Jefferies "On an Unknown Beach", leaving his distinctive thumbprint on a beautiful and deeply melancholic classic. High-grade C-40 chrome cassettes. Edition of 100 copies." - Fragment Factory.

Artist: DILLOWAY, AARON/TOM SMITH
Title: Allein Zu Zweit
Format: Cass
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $9.00
“A documentation of a most memorable event, held at FSK Hamburg in summer of 2012. 2 full sets, approximately 20 minutes each. At first Dilloway solo, followed by a remarkable super duet with Smith, who appeared out of the blue that night, suddenly finding himself on the non existent stage next to Dillo! Ohio based Aaron Dilloway runs the influential Hanson label since 1994 and was a member of Wolf Eyes when they blew up the noise scene in the late 90s/early 2000s. Hes been part of a vast number of projects and collaborations ever since, The Nevari Butchers, Spine Scavenger, The Beast People or Violent Ramp, just to name a few. US refugee Tom Smith has been a core member of the notoriuos To Live And Shave In L.A., played with Pussy Galore in the 80s and has been a part of Ohne alongside of Reto Mäder, Dave Phillips and Daniel Löwenbrück. His ongoing collaborations with Kevin Drumm are semi-legendary, to say the least. Smith is currently living in Hannover, Germany.” - Fragment Factory.

Artist: ELGGREN, LEIF
Title: Das Baank
Format: LP
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"We are proud to present the new solo album from veteran Swedish artist Leif Elggren, co-released with Rekem Records, London/Athens. Skirting both the area of pure sound, as well as that of symbolism, this record is a powerful statement on the limits of social and political absurdity and corruption in our present time. Leif Elggren is a Swedish artist who lives and works in Stockholm. Active since the late 1970s, he is a writer, visual artist, stage performer and composer. He has many sound-works to his credit, both solo and with the Sons of God (with Kent Tankred), on labels such as Ash International, Touch, Radium and Firework Edition Records (which he co-runs with Kent Tankred). His music usually presents carefully selected sound sources over a long stretch of time and can range from quiet electronics to harsh noise. His wide-ranging and prolific body of art often involves dreams and subtle absurdities, social hierarchies turned upside-down, hidden actions and events taking on the quality of icons. Together with artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff, he is a founder of the Kingdoms of Elgaland-Vargaland (KREV) where he enjoys the title of king.” - Fragment Factory.

Artist: ENEMA SYRINGE
Title: Upshutlenvolte
Format: 7"
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $10.00
“Three previously unreleased tracks, recorded back in 1987 in Örebro, Sweden by Kai Parviainen. 14+minutes of raw and primitive staccato electronics with that specific touch of utter insanity, which constitutes the distinctive criterion of E.S. and all the other projects Parviainen has been involved in (such as Enema & Gejonte, Commando Laarz, En Halvkokt I Folie etc).” - Fragment Factory.

Artist: ESPOSITO, MICHAEL & KEVIN DRUMM
Title: The Icy Echoer
Format: 7"
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $13.00
"The Icy Echoer constitutes a premiere in many respects, for both, the label and the artists. After countless collaborations with the likes of Leif Elggren, CM von Hausswolff, Bryan Lewis Saunders and others (mostly released on CD), this 7 marks the first time that Espositos works are published on vinyl, while the same applies to the Fragment Factory. Likewise, believe it or not, its the very first appearance of Drumm on a 7 platter. Michael Esposito is an experimental artist and long-time researcher in Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP), currently located in Chicago, IL. The EVPs which form the basis for The Icy Echoer were taken at St. John - St. Joseph cemetery in Hammond, IL, which has the reputation of being one of the most haunted places in the US. Kevin Drumm, based in Chicago as well, was certainly among the very first names that sunk deep into my memory when I became interested in experimental music back in the day. After a vast number of remarkable outputs on such labels as Nihilist, Hospital, Pica Disk, Editions Mego and several more during the past 13+ years, Im eminently happy to bring this one into the light of day. A document which I personally consider not only as the perfect interaction between two of the most exciting contemporary sound artists, but also as a significant point in the development of the Fragment Factory. 300 copies." - FF.

Artist: ICE YACHT
Title: Pole of Cold
Format: Cass
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $7.50
"Tucked away on Snatch 3 (the last of the Snatch Tapes compilations) released in 1981 is a track by Ice Yacht called “0 Degrees North.” An austere piece of drum loop and drone music, there was talk of a full tape having been recorded by the band (?) but no documentation of any further releases can be found. Rumour had it that Ice Yacht had embarked on an ill-fated trip to the North Pole attempting to retrace a journey made by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen in 1888. This story was given credence when last year a research group uncovered a cassette tape in a vacuum-sealed case in the permafrost. The tape was marked simply Ice Yacht – Pole of Cold. After letting the tape thaw out it was then baked in an oven allowing the transfer of the recordings. Pole of Cold contains six tracks of analogue electronics seemingly mapping an arctic exploration to the coldest place on the planet though exactly when and where they were recorded is unknown. High bias C40 chrome cassette, numbered edition of 100 copies." - Fragment Factory. ICE YACHT is PHILIP SANDERSON from the STORM BUGS/Snatch Tapes.

Artist: KEMP, ALICE
Title: Fill My Body With Flowers And Rice
Format: LP
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $22.00
"Alice Kemp creates a cryptic yet coherent body of work through drawing, painting, objects, sound, audio composition, performance, and beyond. She has performed in Japan, USA, UK & Europe, and her more recent musical output has been released by labels such as Fragment Factory and Harbinger Sound.

«Fill My Body With Flowers And Rice» is Kemps first full-length release to vinyl - a compelling work of more than 40 minutes, including two collaborations with Rudolf Eb.er (Schimpfluch, Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock). The album provides a stirring and intimate insight not only into AKs unique world of obscure, tense and delicate sounds, but also into one of the UKs most exceptional artists of today. This LP is a joint release by Fragment Factory (Hamburg) and Erratum Musical (Paris), released in an edition of 300 copies on white vinyl." - Fragment Factory.

Artist: PHILLIPS, DAVE & CHRS GALARRETA
Title: The Invisible Cage of Comfort
Format: Cass
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $9.00
“Live collaboration recorded at Oslo 10, Basel/Switzerland, 31 May 2014 on side A plus a fully new piece by DP (CH) and CG (Peru) on the flipside, based on their solo live sets performed and recorded the same night. Processed and mixed by DP/CG. High bias chrome cassette with white on-body print, housed in printed cardboard slipcase.” - Fragment Factory.

Artist: SCHIMPFLUCH-GRUPPE
Title: Nigredo
Format: Cass
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $9.00
"On a cassette we have Schimpfluch Gruppe, a notorious group of various musicians, with a live recordings from April last year in Tokyo on one side, as recorded by Rudolf Eb.er (a core member!) and Dave Phillips and on the other side a split channel by them, with Phillips in the left channel and Eb.er in the right channel, recording things that were totally independent. It’s interesting to play this straight after the Alice Kemp release, as it shares the similar approach to working with acoustic sound - straight in your face, although especially in the live recording this seems to be not-so-loud. In the split channel piece there is a bit more noise but here too, I must say it’s not a lot. The action may seem obscure; you could hardly think what’s going on. A performance perhaps, but for all we know we have two persons playing sounds from a laptop, or burning bits of wood, strongly amplified. It has for me the same captivating feel to it, but a strong love for anything sound based is quite in place here. Also the music recorded separately works wonderfully well, and I never had the idea of listening to two different things, stuck together on one tape. This is noise, and this is noise that I like." - Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly.

Artist: TORBA
Title: Ggran
Format: Cass
Label: Fragment Factory
Country: Germany
Price: $8.00
"Mauro Diciocia has been working, releasing and performing under his TORBA moniker for several years now, delivering some of the finest examples of crude and dirty electroacoustics and chopped up tape music. „Ggràn“ consists of two new pieces made in spring of 2016 and is probably his most focused and elaborate work to date. 20 minutes of gripping, modern concrete music, carrying Torbas very own thumbprint, undoubtedly making „Ggran“ quite a highlight in his impressive body of work. Diciocia is based in Berlin, DE. 20 minutes, high-grade chrome cassettes, first edition of 60 copies." - Fragment Factory.
